The Charlotte Hornets announced to the basketball world last season that they were back in the NBA spotlight. So what can Charlotte do in the offseason to compete with the best the East has to offer? Let's find out.
Henderson has served the Hornets well over the years, but it is time for Charlotte to find better production at the shooting guard spot. This will be the season the Hornets will trade Henderson for either draft picks or to find a more consistent performer at the two-guard spot.
Neal was a bright spot off the bench for the Hornets, giving the team a consistent scoring threat. Neal will enter the last year of his two-year deal next season, and the Hornets are going to give Neal a nice pay raise this offseason and make him one of the building blocks going forward.
Jefferson is also entering the final two years of his three-year deal, and the Hornets know that they cannot afford to lose Jefferson in 2016. The Hornets will commence contract extension talks this offseason in hopes of keeping the talented big man in the Queen City for the long-term.
Ridnour is an unrestricted free agent this offseaosn, but he will return to the Hornets because this team is on the rise and he will be assured of playing in the postseason next year by staying in Charlotte.
Hill would add rebounding and defense to the Charlotte front line, and bolster the bench, which was a weak spot for the Hornets last season. Look for Hill to be in the Queen City next season.
